I Took a DNA Test, Now What?

November 4, 2023

10 AM to 1 PM

Nordia House & Online




This will be a hybrid program where you can attend in person at Nordia House or attend online via zoom.


In this course with professional genealogist, Debra Sorensen you will learn why a DNA test is useful, cover what a person can learn from taking a test, discuss how adoptees and unexpected results fit within your family tree and put it all together by reviewing variety of case studies.

Thought you were Swedish but turns out your ancestors aren’t who you thought they were…Expecting to have results from one country or find information on one relative…but find something completely different? This is a great opportunity to figure out how to fill in those missing holes.
